    One bass that I played and was very impressed with was the Ibanez attack. This bass has that vintage weight and styling, and the sound is a mix of Music man and Precision. The string tension was good and it allowed me to be creative with out the hold back that alot of new basses seem to do, I know that string gauge is a factor, but this bass has just simply been put together correctly. One of my own basses is a pretty good sounding Music Man stingray replica. Musicman lookalike by Funkbass. Musicman lookalike headstock. MUSICMAN SOLDEXTA HEAD LOGO.

    When I first played a real fender P bass in 1982 while at school, That bass felt and sounded chunky. When I played the jazz bass in that same year, That was it. The slim neck and more tonal variations coupled with the offset body shape put the precision in the corner standing. The Ricky looked like a bass from outa space at the time ,but the sound and feel was not inviting for me, and it also felt like a hollow body bass.
